Everything an engineer needs
2nd Quarter 2017, Electrical switching & drive systems & components


RS Components offers everything engineers need to design, develop and deploy world-class motion control solutions. From adding smart capabilities and upgrading systems, to dealing with sustainability challenges and ongoing maintenance, its huge range of products can meet almost any motion control application. Products come from many of the world’s leading motion control companies, including Festo, Danfoss, Omron, Phoenix Contact, Schneider Electric and ifm.

Conveying is one example. The upgrade of conveying solutions can offer immediate and tangible benefits in terms of throughput, energy usage and long-term service life. Upgrade options include the addition of newer, more intelligent hardware such as QUINT4 power supply units from Phoenix Contact. This intelligence can also improve access to the wider connected enterprise, using IoT-based solutions and capabilities.

Energy efficiency can be tackled through the use of higher efficiency motors such as the IE3 AC motor range from TECO Westinghouse, or the deployment of variable speed drives and inverters to control motor output more intelligently. Products of note include the new VLT FC 280 from Danfoss, which can be easily retrofitted to replace the popular VLT 2800. RS also provides multiple products and services to support predictive maintenance, for example electronic vibration sensors from ifm. These can be used to monitor motor and bearing vibrations in order to identify critical operating states before failures occur.

RS has also extended its stock from Festo, which comprises Festo’s top selling ranges, plus other innovative products such as the EPCO electric cylinder, which has numerous benefits compared to the traditional pneumatic equivalent.
